ECO-GRO Fish Emulsion

ECO GRO Fish Emulsion microbial food for Explo Grow

ECO GRO Fish Emulsion is manufactured by Eagle Creek Organics

ECO-Gro Fish Emulsion is one of many 'food' products recommended for use together with ExploGrow™ to improve valuable microbial functions (also see CARBOTECH® liquid carbon fertilizer).

ECO-Gro Fish Emulsion is a natural fish emulsion hydrolysate used in agriculture to help the plant's physiology, from seedling development to adulthood through growth stages.

ECO-Gro Fish Emulsion is made up from organic acids such as amino and and fatty acids.

  • Responsible for stimulating beneficial microbe populations in the soil
  • Low cost solution for boosting beneficialmicrobial populations in ExploGrow™ when co-applied as a soil drench
  • The organics acids activate the formation of various metabolic components that are important to the plant's hormonal, immunity, energy and photosynthesis processes
  • Promotes interaction with the plant's defense mechanism (same procedure as in humans for production of antibodies) to activate the PhYto-Alexins
  • Contains inter alia elemental amino acids that increase photosynthesis and auxin formation in the root zone and germination
  • Helps the plant to increase brix (sugar content) and energy levels during drought or stress
  • Breaks down organic matter in the ground and increase the formation of humus constituents in the soil
  • Can be applied as soil and foliar nutrition
  • Increases the effectiveness of most fertilizers
  • Increases N-effectiveness - thus humus formation
  • Organic certification underway

Eco Gro Fish Emulsion Together With Explo Grow Trials On Soybeans

The effect of the stronger plant defences are clearly visible on the leaves of the Soya plant, top right.

  • Hectares planted: 54
  • Farm average yield for Soybeans: 3.2 tons per hectare
  • ExploGrow™ treated area yielded: 4.4 tons per hectare
  • Yield increase with ExploGrow™: +37.50%
  • Only 3.5 liters of ExploGrow™ (together with ECO Gro) applied per hectare, there is therefore considerable scope to achieve even bigger yields, through an optimal application of ExploGrow™.

ECO Gro Fish Emulsion advantages

  • Relatively low cost solution addressing a wide range of plant and microbial food requirements
  • Small quantities of applications make a difference
  • Contains amino acids that can be taken up and absorbed by the plant immediately because of its organic composition
  • Macro and Micro elements are in a balanced form that makes it possible to be absorbed immediately
  • Increases the effectiveness of plant absorption of spray mixtures
  • Stimulates the metabolism and growth of the plant and is also an important component of nucleus division
  • Compatible with all products (except Cu compounds and products with very low pH)
  • Very small particle size

ECO Gro Fish Emulsion application guidelines

  • Can be applied by any spray gun and overhead irrigation system
  • Can be fertilized with any N-P-K fertilizer

ECO Gro Fish Emulsion dosage

  • 2-40l / ha depending on the crop and symptoms of deficiency per application

ECO Gro Fish Emulsion dosage when used with ExploGrow

  • 1-20l / ha depending on the crop and symptoms of deficiency per application
  • Higher dosages of more than 20l / ha may also be beneficial

Co-application (ExploGrow™ + ECO-Gro Fish Emulsion) guidelines:

  • Add ExploGrow™ and ECO Gro into the water tank at the correct dilution (see lables), mix well
  • Application will be most optimal one week before the full moon
  • Leave the mix to stand for 4 hours (NOT more than 24 hours).
  • Flush lines clean after application to avoid clogging

ECO Gro is normally filtered down to 200 micron particle size (can be smaller if required).
